Froggie’s Guide to Choosing Summer Sandals

The South African summer is here, and it’s a hot one! By now, you’ve hit holiday mode, looking forward to some fun in the sun, and the chance to slip into a pair of gorgeous summer sandals, and step out in style! To help you make the right choice, here’s our guide to choosing the perfect pair of sandals…

Choosing a Sandal Style

Did you know that strangers can tell a lot about you, just by checking out your footwear? Our shoes are a statement about our personality, to be sure, but we should also pay attention to our body type when selecting a pair of sandals that shows us off to best effect. Here are some quick pointers:

  • Platform sandals add balance to both wider calves and skinny pins
  • Block heeled sandals slim down thicker ankles
  • Wedge heels give height to those short on stature
  • Flat sandals work well on absolutely everyone!

Choosing a Sandal Colour

Like shoe style, colour can add to or detract from our best bits:

  • Nude colours can help elongate shorter legs
  • Brightly coloured or printed shoes detract the eye away from top-heavy figures.

When selecting a colour, also consider the occasion – black sandals are great for the evening, whilst lighter coloured sandals will deflect heat away from your feet, allowing you to comfortably soak up the sun.

Best Sandals for Sightseeing

Travelling this summer holidays? If you plan on doing a fair share of sightseeing, do opt for sandals which are suitable for walking about – these include flat strappy T-bar sandals and slingback sandals. With thicker soles, these styles provide good foot support, and allow for airflow around the feet, keeping you comfortably cool. Another bonus – Froggie’s Flex Technology Comfort Feature, which ensures that our shoes flex, mould and move with your feet, and the under-foot foam which cushions and supports the contours of the foot.

Choose Shoes to Compliment Your Outfits

Before splashing out on the perfect summer sandals, think about what’s in your wardrobe. If you wear a lot of trousers, long dresses or skirts, choose sandals with simple straps. This keeps your silhouette sleek and elegant. When wearing shorts or short dresses, you can be more adventurous with your strap styles. Gladiator-type sandals are not only on-trend, but help make legs look longer, too.
